Paddle & Pedal, golf, flying and skydiving. Go nuts! You can do it all in Oldambt, even when you are not experienced.
Flying and skydiving
Even from the sky Oldambt is breath taking. Oostwold Airport offers sightseeing flights above Groningen, the Wadden Sea and German Ost-Friesland. You will be flown around in a four to six-person plane, or if you want to, in a historic Boeing Stearman.
Skydiving will bring a rush to your day. You will jump from a plane at 10.000 ft. You will reach a speed of 200 kilometres per hour when falling down. During free fall you will do some acrobatics in the air, like diving, floating and turning. The parachute opens in time and you will land safely. Of course, only those that are experienced are allowed to make jumps like that. In case you are not experienced, opt-in for a tandem jump! An instructor will jump with you. An unforgettable experience!

You will find Pitch & Putt Oostwold at the banks of the Oldambtmeer, at the outskirts of Blauwestad. The golf course is located in a restored pendulum garden. Every hole, every barrier is different. There are concrete bunkers, sand and trees and a couple rather large ponds. The original Groningen gentlemen’s farm has been partially restored and the original house has been transformed to a café-bar. Even if you are not planning to take a swing, Pitch & Putt is worth the visit. The terrace offers a breath-taking view across the 2500 acres of water the Oldambtmeer has to offer.
